I was looking on the internet and found a site that had a man who broke every bone in his body through his lifetime. GOSH! I've never broken any. How many bones have you broken and how did it happen...

I broke a disk in my shoulder once. If a kid tells you to get to the top of the icey snow mound... don't do it.

I have never broken a single bone in my body, however I have gotten stitches 16 times....so I don't know if that's better than breaking a bone or not but it is not fun to live at a hospital :)

I've broken a couple of toes - no big deal. I should have had them set because my smallest toe faces the opposite way of the others. I also broke my collar bone when I was a child in a car accident. Ugh! The nausea from the pain was awful. And also, when I was around 2, a woman from the church my parents went to, was carrying me and fell down the stairs. She dropped me, my leg went through the wall, and of course, it was broken.

Well I have broke three bones in my body. My right hand, my left wrist, and my nose. I broke my right hand while I was in high school playing basketball. I wasn't the best basketball player on the team, infact I probably wasn't even in the top 8 players. But one summer I got to play in a summer league with some guys in my grade. Well one time I was playing and there was a fast break. My team mate threw the ball to me and it was out of my reach, I tired to get the ball by jumping for it, but I just couldn't get it. When I came down I was frustrated as I knew that was going to be my best chance to score in this game. I was underneath the basket, and in frustration I punched the padded wall. Well those pads at the time where only about two inches thick. My hand hurt the rest of the game. After the game I told my folks that it still hurt and sure enough it was broken. Then about four years ago I was playing softball. I was the shortstop and there was a double play at secondbase. I assume that the guy running to second would slide, so I went to jump over him. Well he didn't slide, he took my legs out from under me and when I came down I broke my left wrist. But this time I didn't find out that it was broken until after I played in a tournament the following weekend. And last but not least. Three years ago playing softball again, I took a bad hop to the face and shatter my nose. This time I knew it was broken and left the game. ha ha. When I got to the emergancy room the nurse there told me that I was going to need surgury... this was a surprise to me as I figured they would just set it and I would be on my way. But apparently when you have a quarter size hole in your skull they don't like that. And that my friends is my broken bones stories.

It is amazing hearing that some guy actually managed to break every bone in his body! Wow! I hope that he is allright. I also have never actually broken a bone, but I have had stitches once and I took a pretty hard fall from a bicycle in my youth. I guess that I've been pretty lucky, but I've always been sort of a cautious type and don't try to get into dangerous situations if I can help it. I'm sure that that has saved a few bones of mine, in my time! LOL ^_^
